Our valuation service

Why pay over 40% commission to an auction house for selling your goods?

There has never been a better time to deal with us directly. Most auction houses charge 40% commission, when taking into account buyer’s premium, seller’s fee, illustration fee, insurance and VAT. As well as charging you to sell your items, auction houses charge buyer’s premium of up to 25%, meaning you are less likely to achieve the real market value. Dealing direct with Hepplewhites will get you the very best price for your items, instantly avoiding the above charges.
